Resolution Number 05-10 Absentee Board
RESOLUTION NUMBER 05-10
AUTHORIZING A CITY ABSENTEE BALLOT BOARD
WHEREAS, the City of Mountain Iron is permitted by Minnesota Statute 203B.13, Subd. 1 to authorize a City Absentee Ballot Board effective June 17, 2010; and
WHEREAS, this authorization will bring uniformity in the processing of accepting or rejecting returned absentee ballots to the City of Mountain Iron that would consist of a sufficient number of election judges as provided in sections 204B.19 to 204B.22; and
WHEREAS, this will eliminate the need for election judges to perform this technical and time consuming task on election day wherein the county absentee ballot board can begin the process 30 days prior to an election; and
WHEREAS, this will speed the processing of accepted absentee ballots delivered to the precincts to be incorporated into the vote counts on election day; giving election judges more available time for the voters at the polls.
NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF MOUNTAIN IRON, MINNESOTA, that it hereby authorizes Mountain Iron City Administrator to implement a City Absentee Ballot Board that would consist of a sufficient number of election judges as provided in sections 204B.19 to 204B.22 to perform the task.
DULY ADOPTED BY THE CITY COUNCIL THIS 21st DAY OF JUNE, 2010.
Mayor Gary Skalko
